More Hair Pretties Ideas!

Check out these fun Zipper Pulls made with our Hair Pretties designs! This is a great way to use our Hair Pretties designs for both boys and girls!!

I used the Pumpkin Hair Pretties design to make a fun zipper pull on an orange jacket. I purchased the hardware for the zipper pull on Etsy. You can also find similar findings at craft stores in the jewelry making section. It's easy to remove the zipper pull when the jacket is ready for a wash. To make a zipper pull with hardware, sew the first placement stitch of the Hair Pretties design onto your stabilizer. Take a piece of ribbon and insert the hardware. Fold the ribbon in half, then tape it down to the stabilizer, making sure the ends of the ribbon extend over the placement line, toward the center of the design. Tape the ribbon and hardware down to the stabilizer, then follow the stitching directions for the rest of the Hair Pretties design.

Here's another zipper pull which I made with our Cupcake Hair Pretties design. I simply sewed a length of ribbon into the top of the Cupcake Hair Pretties design by hand, inserted it into the zipper, then tacked the end of the ribbon to the back of the cupcake. I could also have simply sewn two lengths of ribbon into the cupcake then tied it onto the zipper. In hindsight, that's a much better method!

Whichever method you choose, you're sure to love the results! Zipper pulls made with our Hair Pretties designs are a great way to dress up a plain jacket and they're quick to change so you can have a new one for all occasions!
